Has anyone played with digiscoping? The first picture is the view through an iPad.... the second picture is the iPad through a 15x70 binocular...

The pictures are completely unedited, with the exception of shrinking down the size for the CR website....

I went out to the lake again at the weekend, I tried to focus manually this time and I got some good results, I’ll start off with my favourite pic of the day, ISO 400, 640th, f8 shot with my Sigma 500mm then cropped about 50%, I still see that it’s a bit soft, can anyone help my improve my sharpness…..without buying and using LR!!!!
Second pic was shot at the same settings, and so was the third!!
70D - EF 100-400L - EF 24-105L - EF 50 f1.4 USM - EF 100 f2.8 USM Macro - Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - Sigma 610 ST.
Next on the wish list - 5DIII - EF 500 f4L IS

Awesome ... looks like it just finished meditating ... it is very rare to see a bird photo where the bird looks very peaceful, coz almost all bird images look as if the bird is in a hurry or nervous or tensed or edgy etc ... so this one is very unique in that way.

Nice!  Love how the water has that sort of dreamy look.

OK, I finally did a set up for my waxwing friends.  First I cleared my pond of all the snow -whew.  Then I got out the garden hose and stretched out all 200 feet of it over there this morning after the sun was coming up.  Then I invited my friends to model for me once I got the water distributed.  Unfortunately, they would not behave!! ;)  What a bunch of troublemakers.

Thanks jrista, it was a blast today.  They really were unruly and troublesome.  But no problem, now I get to skate around on the pond! ;)

Nice shot ... the image displays a lot of character of those 2 birds ... me thinks the yelling one is the wife ;D ... ok just to make sure I don't get in trouble (just in case the wife is reading my posts), my wife never yells at me, but does the much more deadly "silent treatments"  :P
